Rainbow-bright blooms and leafy lushness are your best bets for a summer wedding. How to bask in the boldest hues? Take a crash course in color from flower whisperer Livia Cetti.
Blue & Amethyst
Wedding centerpiece of delphiniums, scabiosa, and forget-me-nots, $250.
Vibe + Venue: "Rustic and daytime. I see this look either in a restaurant serving no-fuss family-style food, or on a farm or winery where everything is fresh and nothing is overthought."
Tablescape Tip: "You could replace opaque vessels with vintage glass bottles and Mason jars. I'd alternate tall centerpieces like these with shorter versions on long farm tables. In terms of height, my general rule is this: Put your elbow on a surface and your fist under your chin—a high centerpiece should not be taller than that if you're placing it on a table where people are eating."
Palette Plan: "Set the arrangements on a sheer or open-weave charcoal gray runner."
Similar Look, Different Flowers: "Delphiniums are widely available, but if you must substitute, go for larkspurs, which you'll find in the summer."
